Jami

1. What is your RHU alias?

Jami, cause that's my real name and I suck at coming up with names.

Thrift stores.

3. Name a store from which you would never-ever buy something again?

Best Buy.

4. If you could work for any other retail business, what would it be -a specific store or a general category?

Well, I don't work in retail, I work in a library. I'd rather be singing. But if forced to work in retail I guess just because it would freak people out a store like Condom Revolution.

5. What business has the best employees you've met?

Hooters and Nordstroms. Both treat me very well and don't discriminate against me because I'm fat. The Hooters girls are like the sisters I never had. Nordstroms employees always go above and beyond. Too bad whomever shops for their plus size section doesn't know what they're doing as I haven't found a single decent thing there in about five years now.

Best Buy. They treat everyone like a shop lifter and ignore people when they need help.

Purple, dark chocolate, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, Chatanooga Choo Choo.

9. What is the best month of the year and why?

September because that's when I was born.

10. How many boards would the Mongols hoard if the Mongol horde got bored?

47 because some math teacher who tauhgt one of the writers of Star Trek: The Next Generation said eventually that's the answer to all math problems. Which is why 47 or 74 appears somewhere in all episodes.

Bored at the Bookstore

1. What is your RHU alias? Bored at the Bookstore

2. What type of store do you shop at the most? Target - they have *working* electric go-karts to allow my crippled knees surcease from shopping pain.

3. Name a store from which you would never-ever buy something again? The skaters' supply store at the local ice rink, where we once were stuck in their crappy elevator while hordes of people including management ignored us (Well, they did until we used the alarm phone to call the Fire Department to come rescue us. All they had to do was punch the button on the outside of the elevator to open the doors, but no one outside would - we could actually hear them saying things like, "It's kids messing around in there... ignore them," while we pounded and hollered for help. The FD shut the second floor down until the elevator got fixed; the owner told our daughter that "Two old fools got themselves stuck and caused me a lot of expense..." before she said, "Those were my parents." He never apologized, either.

4. If you could work for any other retail business, what would it be -a specific store or a general category? I love MY store... a small indie new/used book store. Can't imagine anything else.

5. What business has the best employees you've met? Our local Target. Just super friendly and helpful.

2. What type of store do you shop at the most? Craft stores and the always fancy Target.

3. Name a store from which you would never-ever buy something again? I had such a terrible experience at Dillards, I refuse to even look at the store front, much less actually purchase something from them.

4. If you could work for any other retail business, what would it be -a specific store or a general category? Either a craft store (I would never actually bring home a paycheck) or a theme park. I worked at a theme park after high school (in retail) and it was actually a lot of fun when I didn't have to deal with Junior High kids or church groups (biggest thieves, which I find hilarious).

5. What business has the best employees you've met? My neighborhood Target has some of the friendliest, most helpful employees I've ever come across. Lowes too.

6. What business has the worst employees you've met? Local Best Buy. We waited half an hour for someone to acknowledge us, even though we were ready and willing to make a major appliance purchase right then and there. We finally left and went to Lowes for our appliances.

6. What business has the worst employees you've met?

H'mmm... I've been lucky enough never to encounter any actual retail slaves who were awful, but I've known several stores where the management didn't care and even posted a story about one manager who ignored the fact a jackass crusty was making a pretty employee *very uncomforatble [http://www.retailhellunderground.com/my_weblog/2012/08/creepy-custy-making-the-moves-on-a-salesgirl-gets-told-.html]

ShelterDoll

1) ShelterDoll (used to go by Char and ShelterKat. Can't make up my mind)

2) Flea market. Met my best friends and boyfriend there.

3) Wal-Fart. They abuse their workers. However the employees are nice (one guy looks just like Wreck-It Ralph). Also, the toy vendor at the flea market after we had a nasty dispute (expected me to work for free (When I find toys on closeout with my friends), but I had to pay him for any services I needed, like selling a toy). He tried to win me back near Christmas, yaddah yaddah.

4) I've been trying to get a Medical Coding job, or with Sterling Jewelers. But my dream is to be in the toy industry.

5) The flea market. Individual vendors get tested pretty hard, and the best stay. My best friend works for an older woman who has become our 'aunt', so to speak. The woman, 'Magpie', even lets my best friend reciprocate rudeness to rude people.

6) Ugh, I dunno. I've had more issues with custies

5. What business has the best employees you've met? A pair of tellers at a BofA really helped me out of a tight spot once... and I don't even bank there! I had to contact the company about them. They were fantastic human beings. Also, the last guy to unlock my car who contracted with AAA.
6. What business has the worst employees you've met? A guy that contracted with $19 Lockout Service. he was rude, accused me of having an attitude (um, no), yelled obscenities at me, and threatened to have my car towed.

Womens Retail Slave

1-Womens Retail Slave

2-Grocery Store-King Soopers, Target and Walmart

3-Chick-Fil-A for the whole "hate the gays" sorry sweetie don't hate on me.

4-I so want to get out of womens retail. I love retail as I think its in my blood so maybe something like kitchen stores, home stores, or home improvement.

5-Not a lot of places stick out to me, however the folks down at the Hilton Garden Inn in Albequerquequeueuruee (HA) went out of their way to fix a incorrect booking, a broken smoke alarm that beeped into the weee hours of the night, randomly gave us free movie credits or cookies.

6-there are sadly a lot out there- Ballys Gym would have to be the last one that I could say pissed me off. Offered membership, employee quit somehow not entering it in, new employee said they fixed it and didnt, manager blamed employee which the employee blamed the manager. All in front of me.

7-Aint' nobody got time for that..

8-Yellow or orange. Tie between southern home cooking-think hand cut biscuits, grits, mac n cheese, home-made goodness and Asian food-thai, sushi, chinese. I love me some musicals- Moulin Rouge, Cabaret, Sound of Music, Hairspray. Too many to mention as I have 7000 songs on my IPOD. Love disco, dance remixes, 50&60's girl groups, 80's new wave and ALL the pop, cheesy love songs and ballads.

9-When the season changes to fall. Leaves change, cooler weather, wind and rainy day. Fall fashion, sweater weather, hot cocoa and fireplaces.

10-Divide by zero.

Wmdkitty

1. What is your RHU alias?
I'm WMDKitty, I am your reminder that not everything in the universe has a purpose.

2. What type of store do you shop at the most? (I shop at craft stores a lot)
In meat-space, it's grocery stores and convenience stores. Online, it's Amazon, because they have ALL the things.

3. Name a store from which you would never-ever buy something again?
Can't think of one, really. I've yet to have a retail experience so bad that I would never go back, though there are stores I try to avoid on principle (Wally-World).

4. If you could work for any other retail business, what would it be -a specific store or a general category?
Hmm. A gaming and card shop, because that's the shit I know.

5. What business has the best employees you've met?
There's this little hole-in-the wall, well, there's two, actually. No, three. One is Woods Coffee, they make an effort to remember your face and your order. Second is The Stone Moon, a lovely little hole in the wall place that sells an assortment of mystical and magickal items. Third is Man Pies -- prompt service, delicious food, served with a smile.

6. What business has the worst employees you've met?
Couldn't say, I don't get out that much, and the places I do go to tend to be rather specialized.

7. If Wolverine, Gandalf, and Chuck Norris waged an epic battle, who would win?
Ozzy.

8. What's your favorite color/food/movie/song?
Black, and in case that doesn't count, purple. My favorite food can't be limited to one choice, though I am rather partial to anything with fish or bacon. My favorite movie, erm... too many to list, let's just leave it at "I like campy/bizarre/mind-fuck movies, preferably horror." And my favorite song is... much the same way, in that I don't have just one, and it varies day to day. I like classic metal and classic rock, not big on pop or "new metal", and I can't stand hip-hop/rap or country "music".

9. What is the best month of the year and why?
December, because Yule marks the return of the Sun, and means we're halfway through the cold and dark season.

10. How many boards would the Mongols hoard if the Mongol horde got bored?
Fuck that, PASS THE BONG!

I would work for a small local yarn or quilting shop. And by work for I mean own.

5. What business has the best employees you've met?
The Home Depot closest to me. Always nice and asking you if they can help (unlike the Lowe's right across the street). The guy who sold me my refrigerator was very nice, and when it went on sale later that month and I came in to get the difference in price, the guy who helped me was able to track down the sale (which I saw online) and discovered the in store signs were printed wrong (or never got put up for my model) and was able to refund me the difference.

6. What business has the worst employees you've met?
Well... The Home Depot in the town I used to live, lol! My landlady said I needed to have a copy of my key cut for them so I went to the Home Depot, which was closer than the Lowe's. Pressed the little page button at the station.... no one came. Pressed it again... no one came (and I waited until it stopped blinking). By this time I am like SUPER PISSED, so I start to leave and meet a manager on the way out who asks me if I was the one paging. Told him yes and he said come on and copied my key. He said the guy was in the back, and wasn't supposed to be taking his lunch then or whatever. Anyway, I was pretty proud of myself for NOT morphing into a crusty on him.

7. If Wolverine, Gandalf, and Chuck Norris waged an epic battle, who would win? Chuck Norris

Wal-mart. Local KFC too because they made me wait at the drive thru (blocked in) for 15 minutes without even saying anything to me. Kid was too busy talking (shooting the shit type talking) to the person in the car in front of me and there were two cars behind me. Didn't move or do anything until I got out of the car and went to the window to tell them to move so I could just leave.

Queer Geek

1. What is your RHU alias? Queer "Don't hate me becaue I'm fabulous" Geek!

2. What type of store do you shop at the most? Yes, I love arts and crafts stores. For a while I ran small business on Etsy but I took a break.

5. What business has the best employees you've met? Bossco. I don't know if this is true but I've seen employees get along and they at least the company tries to be fair to the workers from what I've seen. I'm still wary though.

6. What business has the worst employees you've met? Hell-mart and any fast food place. Nuff' said.

7. If Wolverine, Gandalf, and Chuck Norris waged an epic battle, who would win? None of them. Voldemort would come out of his grave and blow up their asses with some dark magic.

8. What's your favorite color/food/movie/song? Blue/pizza/Les Miserable/Let's Have a Kiki Kiki

9. What is the best month of the year and why? November. I enjoy winter (sometimes) and it's not X-mas and seems to be pretty chill for me.

10. How many boards would the Mongols hoard if the Mongol horde got bored? What's a Mongol? Isn't that a name of a Kardashian clothing line because those bitches need to beat down with their own dose of reality: EVERYBODY HATES YOU!

Murbles

1. What is your RHU alias?
Murbles

2. What type of store do you shop at the most?
Other than the local coffee shop, Dollar Stores. They have some of the coolest stuff in there :)

3. Name a store from which you would never-ever buy something again?
There's this one convenience store in town where the owner tried to steal my bank card, and then when I went back in to get it, after I realized it was missing, I watched him trying to do it to someone else!

4. If you could work for any other retail business, what would it be -a specific store or a general category?
Either a used book store, you know, one of those places that smell musty and books are just stored together. You can find great things there, or the occult boutique in my city. There's some pretty cool, and weird, customers there lol.

5. What business has the best employees you've met?
There's a Timmy's (Canadian coffee shop) that I stop at every day and I'm always greeted at the speaker with a cheery voice, and the window person always has a smile

6. What business has the worst employees you've met?
I always have a problem getting knowledgeable help at Future Shop. It's mainly just that every single part of a computer has it's own section and employee and they won't help you in another section... but that could just be the stores in my area.

7. If Wolverine, Gandalf, and Chuck Norris waged an epic battle, who would win?
The Flying Spaghetti Monster :P

8. What's your favorite color/food/movie/song?
Black, cottage cheese and pineapple, Hunger Games, Two Black Cadillacs by Carrie Underwood (watch the video!)

9. What is the best month of the year and why?
October. My mom was born on Halloween, so we always made a big deal out of it. So I go full spooky :)

10. How many boards would the Mongols hoard if the Mongol horde got bored?
4 and 3/8. I can't see them interested in any more, it just seems wasteful :P

Eve Dallas

1. Eve Dallas. Because bite me, that's why.
2. Bookstores. Waterstones in particular because I have a card. I've even got a 'book day' coming up soon. I literally spend a day off going by bus to the big city, buying the latest Nora Roberts/J.D Robb/Larissa Ione etc etc. Then sitting in a coffee shop and reading before browsing the stores. Nothing relaxes me more.
3. A small business in the tourist part of my town, for the simple reason that I worked there and got fired for...something which I can't remember now. They sold typical crap anyway, and I had just been offered a job working with kids. Score!
4. I would have to say it wouldn't be retail. I would give anything to work with children again. I have never felt so proud of myself working with them. Kids, the nice ones, can really spike the ego.
5.It's a cross between my local Starbucks, because the staff there are real friendly and I have never once had a single complaint about the place. Or the Mini Tesco near my work. I swear, after five months of not going in there after a night, this one cashier recognised me and asked how my night shift went. I was stunned, as I was wearing my hat, had changed my hair, and was in a rush. Props to her, seriously, amazing woman.
6.I can honestly say I'm fortunate enough to not have come across horrible workers so far. Though I remember in a corner store being peeved when I noticed the guy behind the counter practically glaring at me as I walked around the shop. I look like a teenage NAT to you?
7. Chuck Norris. Or Roarke. Or Shepard. My Gods, what a team that would make, eh?
8. Purple, crunchy meringue, Beauty and the Beast, Any song from the aforementioned movie.
9.September. Because of Alcon, Norcon, and the subseqeunt restorative period afterwards.
10. 968

Daisy

1. What is your RHU alias? Daisy, because after one particularly stressful weekend at work, my boss bought me a bouquet of daisies for how well I handled it. (I love my boss.)

2. What type of store do you shop at the most? Superstore and Dollar Store. What can I say, I'm a broke student!

3. Name a store from which you would never-ever buy something again? I've never really had a horrible experience at any store, but I confess I almost never shop at bookstores because the library is so much cheaper, and having to return books takes up less space in my room!

4. If you could work for any other retail business, what would it be -a specific store or a general category? I don't exactly love the hours (7-3, 3-11, 11-7), but I do love the hotel business, and for a minimum-wage after-school job, I really can't complain! I don't think I'd ever work any other retail job!

5. What business has the best employees you've met? There is one older gentleman at my neighbourhood Tim Horton's who makes a point of saying "Good morning! How are you?" to every single person who comes through, even though the lineup is always 20+ min long and both tills are slammed with customers. It creeps people out the first time, but then you realize he is just a very friendly, sweet old man!

6. What business has the worst employees you've met? I once stayed at a hotel where the creepy old man at the front desk was hitting on me. I was a 19-year-old girl travelling alone. Needless to say, I stayed one night, checked out ASAP, and never came back.

7. If Wolverine, Gandalf, and Chuck Norris waged an epic battle, who would win? Gandalf. I'm pretty sure beard length correlates with epic power.

8. What's your favorite color/food/movie/song? Purple, popcorn, Pirates of the Caribbean, and don't hate me, but Taylor Swift and Katy Perry are my delightfully guilty pleasures!

9. What is the best month of the year and why? July. It's the only time of year you can be reasonably sure it won't snow around here :(

10. How many boards would the Mongols hoard if the Mongol horde got bored? 42.

Mollywobbles

Yay, I love these! Also, PONIES. Spritzy, dunno if I've brohoofed you in the comments before this or not, but *brohoof* anyway =3

1. What is your RHU alias?
Mollywobbles, because Chuck Norris checks under his bed for Molly Weasley =3

2. What type of store do you shop at the most?
Food City for foods, Walmart for other things, GameStop for video games.

3. Name a store from which you would never-ever buy something again?
My local Taco Bell. I literally waited 15 full minutes for 6 items the last time I was in there. They need to learn to prioritize their orders. And have more people staffed.

4. If you could work for any other retail business, what would it be -a specific store or a general category?
I'd love to work at a video game or bookstore, but lately since my job at McHell's has been getting so crummy, I've been fantasizing about working for Walmart again. =|

5. What business has the best employees you've met?
There's a manager from Kristal's that comes through my drive-thru line a few days a week who's super sweet, but Best Employees definitely goes to GameStop. My husband used to shop at FYE when there was one in the local mall, and probably about 80% of the GameStop staff worked there while it was open. They seem to remember him from their FYE days, and they always strike up a conversation of some kind with me (which is really important to me because I hate being talked down to and I don't know how I'd react if I walked into a game store and the employees assumed I was there shopping for my boyfriend/husband/brother/whatever and not for myself). Not to mention, two of the girls that work there are fellow Bronies/Pegasisters (I don't know which they like to be called), and one of them even wears a Brett Favre Green Bay Packers jersey to work (having been born and raised in WI, I grin a little to myself when I see it).

6. What business has the worst employees you've met?
I can't really think of one off the top of my head. The last time I went to Walmart and didn't use the self checkout, the cashier I had seemed to be hard of hearing, which, combined with my social anxiety, made it extremely frustrating when I couldn't effectively communicate with her (I always fear that if I raise my voice even slightly, I'll end up shouting and make an ass of myself). I realize it was no one's fault, but it was a fairly traumatic experience for me, and if she were to read this comment, I'd take the opportunity to apologize to her if it seemed like I was being short with her. =(

7. If Wolverine, Gandalf, and Chuck Norris waged an epic battle, who would win?
I'm going to have to steal Spritzy's answer and say Discord, because PONIES.

8. What's your favorite color/food/movie/song?
Royal purple/anything that's bad for me/Galaxy Quest/"Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)" by Journey.

9. What is the best month of the year and why?
April, because it's when everything is in bloom, it rains but doesn't rain too much, and it's warming up from winter but isn't as stifling hot as some of the summer months can get.

10. How many boards would the Mongols hoard if the Mongol horde got bored?
OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND!!! (Sorry, I'm a DBZ fangirl, I couldn't resist :P)
